Anyone who picked and opened a link this week about "modern" architecture, must have thought of our City of the Angels. Indeed, we have divided our city in sections for sectors of our industry. Some say our city is the most segregated one in the world. I don't know about that What I see is two schools in one at SAMOHI. I see a diversity of peoples trying to improve their lives as nurses and technicians at UCLA.
Brazil is quite insular. We don't speak the language of the cucarachos, tupamaros, or whatever pejorative we used back in the 70s for South American students visiting at the Federal Universty, sharing spacious rooms and drafting tables with us. Thus, in Rio, we saw all shades of Afro-Brazilians, Native-Brazilians, and the so-called "white" folks, who are "white" due to economic status.
I believe the USA is more democratic racially, despite the divisions of 'hoods according to ethnicity, "white flight." and other racial problems. Look, we have a black candidate for president! Think about this, more on it this fascinating topic later. I leave you with the Minister of Culture in Brazil, the Great Gilberto Gil.
